EVENT DATE

Sunday 9th September 2012 (postponed from it’s original 18th March date)

LOCATION

Clitheroe, Lancashire

EVENT SUMMARY

The newest sportive in the CTC Challenge Ride Series, the “Witches Curse” is a scary challenge for those riders wanting to test early season fitness or training for later big continental Etapes.

ROUTE INFORMATION

A choice of 2 route options are available –

  • 68 miles
  • 45 miles

“The long route at 68 miles may seem short for a sportive but with over 7500feet of climbing this is a frightening test for even the best climbers. There are 15 recognised named climbs to be tackled with two feed stops to keep everyone’s energy levels to the max. Even the short route at 45 miles is a tough test packing in nearly 5000feet of climbing, so there is no easy route to take. If the climbing takes it’s toll on the day fear not as the courses have been designed so that no point is more than 10 miles from start/finish.”
